Most common varieties of barley require mechanical and abrasive removal of the tenacious hull covering. This process also removes most of the bran layer and germ. Bobs Red Mill Whole Grain Barley is grown from an ancient variety that grows in a loose hull, called hull-less barley. It comes to you whole and complete with all its nutrition. Use it in most recipes that call for pearl barley.
